A Baltimore mother is being hailed for doing her part to quell the violence after a video of her smacking her son upside the head when she spotted him rioting and throwing rocks at police emerged on Monday.
The unidentified mom recognized her son even though he was wearing a black ski mask that covered much of his face.
She spotted him on TV throwing rocks and went after him like a heat-seeking missile.
The family of police-shooting victim Akai Gurley had a message on Friday for the Rev. Al Sharpton: Keep your “circus” away from his funeral!
The blowhard opportunist muscled his way into the arrangements — and even put out press releases promising to deliver the eulogy — without ever consulting the family or offering to foot the bill.
But Gurley’s relatives told Sharpton to stay away rather than turn the somber ceremonies into a spectacle.
“It’s been a nightmare,” Gurley’s aunt, Hertencia Petersen, told The Post. “He just wants to take credit for this when he’s never even contacted my sister [Gurley’s mother].
“Who made you the spokesperson of our family? We just want to bury our nephew with dignity and respect.”
Petersen was stunned that Sharpton and his National Action Network billed him as the eulogist for a Friday funeral, when they were planning on a Saturday service and wanted a speaker who actually knew Gurley.
“How can you do a eulogy for someone you don’t even know? It’s heartbreaking,” she said.
By late Friday, Sharpton accepted a rare defeat and backed off, though he blamed it on “confusion and division” within the Gurley family.
He said he would not attend Saturday’s 11 a.m. service at Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Brooklyn — and even backed off the Friday wake.
Gurley, 28, was shot and killed on Nov. 20 at Brooklyn’s Louis Pink Houses by rookie cop Peter Liang, who fired blindly into the darkness of an unlit stairwell.
Liang, who had been on a patrol at the East New York housing project, told officers it was an accident.
The Brooklyn district attorney plans to present evidence to a grand jury to determine whether Liang will face criminal charges, officials said Friday.
Gurley’s mom, Sylvia Palmer, spoke about her son’s death publicly for the first time Friday and said she is putting her faith in the courts.
“There is nothing in this world that can heal my pain and my heartache,” Palmer said. “And I pray to God that I get justice for my son.”
Gurley had made plans to drive to Florida to visit Palmer for Thanksgiving. Instead, Palmer flew to New York to bury her son.
She got no help from Sharpton, even as he grabbed headlines with his bluster in the days following the shooting.
Petersen, her sister, turned to her own health-care union, SEIU 1199, to pay for Palmer’s travel arrangements.
“National Action Network would have held the funeral without them,” said Malkia King, president of the union’s benefits fund, who helped raise the $6,000 needed to pay for flights and a hotel room for Palmer and other relatives.
Petersen fumed that Sharpton is just a publicity hound who never mourned her dead nephew.
“There is no piece of the pie for Mr. Sharpton here,” she warned, adding that whenever the rev. sticks his nose in tragedies, “It’s not pretty — there’s confusion.”
She said that Saturday service would have been “chaos” if Sharpton showed up.
“It’s about control and power,” she said. “We’re not here for that.”
There are national protests – even riots – over the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was shot by one policeman after significant provocation and violence. The incident was thoroughly investigated by the national and international press. It was investigated by local police, who released findings to the public. A grand jury considered the facts and found no cause for charges against the police officer.
Meanwhile, Miriam Carey, a young black mother with her baby in tow, was gunned down in a hail of at least 26 gunshots by Capitol Police in Washington more than a year ago. She committed no crime, but made a wrong turn near the White House. Few facts have been publicly released, and all official video has been suppressed. Despite investigations by the police and Justice Department, no charges have been recommended against any police officers. There have been no demonstrations, the media have demonstrated a complete lack of interest in the case and Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have shown no interest.
In fact, on Wednesday, the Washington Post released its first major story on the Carey incident, confirming the shocking reporting of WND, over the last 13 months.
“Here’s the lessons from Ferguson America – Don’t let your kids grow up to be thugs who think they can steal, assault & attack cops as a way of life & badge of black (dis)honor. Don’t preach your racist bullshit ‘no justice no peace’ as blabbered by Obama’s racist Czar Al Not So Sharpton & their black Klansmen. When a cop tells you to get out of the middle of the street, obey him & don’t attack him as brainwashed by the gangsta assholes you hang with & look up to. It’s that simple unless you have no brains, no soul, no sense of decency whatsoever. And don’t claim that ‘black lives matter’ when you ignore the millions you abort & slaughter each & every day by other blacks. Those of us with a soul do indeed believe black lives matter, as all lives matter. So quit killin’ each other you fuckin’ idiots… Drive safely.”
“The boy who cried wolf eventually learned his lesson. After rallying the countryside for his amusement several times, a wolf did show up. By that time the villagers no longer believed him. The wolf ate the sheep.”

When will black racists in this country realize that since they incessantly cry wolf, no longer does anyone give a shit?
This entire Ferguson, Missouri shebang, for instance, is nothing more than another overblown excuse to gain attention by acting out in anger. Inglorious black leaders believe that when their community rises up—for good reasons or bad—they might receive more government handouts and be able to bully “whitey” to boot. The Democrats simply throw money at these kinds of problems. This is akin to throwing dope at drug addicts.
Thank you Loser B. Johnson for inventing the welfare state.
I’m starting to see that the most violent blacks are using tactics similar to those employed by worldwide jihadists. They say they want peace, but closely behind this sham is violence, anger, murder, racism, and general all around thuggery.
Meanwhile, whitey is purchasing firearms and ammunition so they can blow their fucking heads off when they choose to exercise their favorite fallback: Violence and stupidity-based behavior, like the knockout game.
They will continue to be ignored until they wise up, exercise restraint, and become more assimilated within the American communities. If they earn respect, they will most assuredly obtain it from the majority of the rest of us.
They need to realize THEY are the racists.
For now, fuck the black community. We’re fed up with dealing with the lawlessness. They need to get their shit together so they might someday be taken seriously.
Luckily, the black community has scores of super-intelligent members who understand that blacks are their own worst enemy.
They reject so-called black leaders like Malcolm X, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Obama, and Eric Holder who lead blacks astray as patsy’s for their own selfish reasons.
They follow more closely to the Martin Luther King, Jr. doctrine of equality through peace, not anger, looting, bigotry, bullying, assaulting, murdering, and generally striking out at non blacks.
These super-intelligent members aren’t traitors or “Uncle Toms”. They are the smarter members of the black community and set a shining example the others should follow.

Race protests dominate St. Louis on so-called ‘Moral Monday’
FERGUSON — After a long standoff in heavy rain, 43 protesters who had offered themselves for arrest outside the police station were taken into custody about noon Monday — the first of several “Moral Monday” demonstrations. More arrests were made later in the day and into the night, some during a series of flash mob-like protests around the area. }} Read more…
Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?
Some time during this whole Ferguson brouhaha, I heard it said that the rioting was dishonoring the memory of Michael Brown.
They must have been smoking the same PCP he was when he bum rushed the cop.
Having seen the video of Brown’s behavior in the convenience store, there is no doubt in my mind that if it were some one else who was shot, he would be very prominently placed among those smashing and grabbing their way through the town.
